We can start by saying it is utterly beautiful. We can then add that it was built around 1300. We can also add that the graphic art is by Giotto, the founder of the Renaissance. For anyone who responds to art, to graphic excellence and to history, this small chapel has the lot. Admittedly, in our party, a couple of... More

Complicated process to get in - pre-reserve your 15 minute slot on-line or by phone. Cheaper on Mondays as the Museum is closed. Max group size 25. A good 15 minute introductory video whilst waiting for the doors to open. Well worth the time and money (8 euros)

You must reserve in advance. Visit the museum for the video introduction before the visit. Giotto's humanistic portrayals opened the way to the Renaissance. Unforgettable.

We visited the Chapel on a Saturday only to find that we had to wait 3 hours until our time slot. Definitely book ahead because whilst you could easily spend some time in the rest of the museum, only the sections have labels in English, not the detailed exhibits.

I certainly liked the frescoes. At home I read much about Gioto.If you know Russian read Paola Volkova esse on this topic. The staff at the museum were very helpful and polite. I bought tickets on line in advance. The time of our visit appeared not suibable for us and the assistant changed it.We were happy.

I am a big fan of Renaissance architecture and Italian Art, and I recommend you to use this tour when you want to discover the beauty and the history of this chapel! Giotto's Chapel is a marvellous place!

Also very well organised for visiting and a good video to start with that gives you a good general info on the painting of Giotto - a must see place!
